Shawne puts art, ideas and dreams into words for W!LD RICE. A graduate of Oxford University, she spent many days (and nights and years) working in the Ministry of Defence. She has long since left the civil service, and is glad to have the opportunity to work in the arts – which she believes is integral in nurturing the mind, heart and soul of a person… and a nation. An inveterate movie buff and occasional film critic, Shawne is an avid theatre-goer. In particular, she loves musicals more than she has words to express.
